Children Ages 6+ • 1.25 hrs. • Abridged • © 2008

Jack Prelutsky, the nation's first children's poet laureate, returns with another collection of poems set to music. Listeners are introduced to a world that includes the magical--you'll meet homework-burning dragons and griffins--and the everyday--"I accidentally scared a skunk/a hornet stung my head/I'm sleeping in the bottom bunk/my bunkmate wets the bed." On display is a deeply creative imagination. Prelutsky's love of rhyme, funny story, and wordplay are once again vividly apparent. The fun, original music of these cheerful pieces provides a bright backdrop for Prelutsky's humorous rhymes, which he presents in a pleasant, upbeat voice. The poet's ability to reach across the parent/child humor divide, cleverly entertaining both, will be much appreciated. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
